7:04 am
all. i was speaking this morning to a former boxing commissioner here in the state of kentucky, and she told me that to her eye this event seemed ten times larger than the kentucky derby because all of the crowds that have filled the city over the last several days. louisville, of course, is where a young man named cassius clay embarked on a boxing career and became one of the most famous people on earth, maybe the most famous person on earth. today all eyes will be on louisville as the city welcomes the world to celebrate the memory of its hero. it was a somber moment when muhammad ali's body arrived at louisville's freedom hall on thursday. ♪ his wife, lonnie, sat in silence as islamic prayers filled the room. more than 14,000 people, many of them muslim, came to honor a man
7:05 am
greatest ambassador. >> he was a gift to his people, his religion, his country, and ultimately to the world. >> muhammad ali. >> reporter: ali embraced the faith in 1964. he proudly carried its message of peace and unity throughout the world. >> say it like it is. >> reporter: it's here in louisville the champ will make his final journey. a funeral procession will travel more than 23 miles through the streets where a young man, then known as cassius clay, got his start. they'll pass by his childhood home, his high school, and the museum that bears his name. >> who's the greatest? >> you are! >> reporter: this week, many have struggled to find words to celebrate a man who never seemed to run out of them. >> i'm an actorment -- actor. i'm a fighter. and most of all, i'm pretty.
7:06 am
former president bill clinton and comedian billy cristal who will be among those who eulogize the man whose legacy remains unmatched. fellow heavyweight champion lennox lewis is a pallbearer. >> he's had a long life and has affected so many people around the world, me included. i'm happy that he's finally resting. and i'm the one that's helping to bring him to his resting place. >> reporter: after a private burial ceremony today, thousands of people here in will attend an interfaith service in his honor. a service that was planned by muhammad ali himself. among the people celebrating ali's life today are king abdullah ii was jordan. he will be here, as well as the head of state of turkey. as we mentioned, former president bill clinton. ali once told a friend of mine that some people don't know the
7:07 am
united states, but everybody knows muhammad ali. certainly on this day, that has never been more true. anthony? >> very true. scott, thank you very much. we'll be watching when you anchor the "evening news" from louisville tonight. as scott mentioned, ali's burial procession will go past the ali center and the house where he grew up. jericka duncan is outside the clay family home on louisville's grand avenue that is now an historic landmark. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. as you can see behind me, this right here is an historic landmark. this is the home of muhammad ali. as we know, he was first known as cassius clay. the two-bedroom home actually opened up as a museum just last month. the only way you can really get a sense of how the family lived is to come here and visit this home. no cameras are allowed. no photographs are allowed to be taken inside of the home. take a look

historic landmark or marker, rather, in front that probably says it best -- here is where youj clay's values -- young clay's values were instilled. ir respects to their hometown hero. again, it's kind of become another memorial site if you will for people to pay homage to the champ with balloons and flowers and cards right outside of the place he called home from 1947 to 1961. now it's unclear exactly how long the procession route will take. but this home will be at the end of the procession route which is about 23 miles long. we expect thousands if not tens of thousands of people to line that route later today. norah? >> all right. thank you. and our streaming news network, cbsn, will have special live coverage of muhammad ali's memorial starting at 1:00 p.m., noon central. it appears the long and

hard-fought presidential race is effectively over. president obama endorsed hillary clinton for president yesterday after meeting with bernie sanders. clinton welcomed the president's support telling an interviewer, "we started off as fierce competitors. we've ended up as true friends and partners." julianna goldman is in washington where the president is ready to campaign for clinton starting next week. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president's endorsement wasn't a surprise to bernie sanders. a source tells cbs news that president obama told sanders he'd be endorsing hillary clinton when they spoke over the phone last sunday. the vermont senator asked the president to hold off until they had a chance to meet in person. >> well, here we are in mid-june, and we're still standing. [ applause ] >> reporter: in a speech free of attacks or presidential promises, bernie sanders told a crowd in washington his fight isn't over. >> together we are going to change our national priorities. >> reporter: earlier in a video posted on hillary clinton's
7:10 am
>> i'm with her -- >> reporter: president obama officially endorsed his one-time democratic rival and secretary of state. >> i know how hard this job can be. that's why i know hillary clinton will be so good at it. >> reporter: the president taped the message on tuesday as voters were heading to the polls in several primary states, and his support was followed quickly by more kind words from vice president joe biden. >> whoever the next president is, and god willing in my view it will be secretary clinton -- >> reporter: the endorsement came less than two hours after sanders wrapped up a meeting at the white house. >> i will of course be competing in the d.c. primary. >> reporter: speaking to reporter afterwards, the vermont senator indicated he'd exit the race following the final contest next tuesday. >> i will work as hard as i can to make sure donald trump does not become president of the united states. >> reporter: later sanders traveled to capitol hill for meetings with democratic leaders who rallied to support clinton but still praised sanders. >> he's made our country a better place. he's made r
7:11 am
place. >> what bernie sanders did was powerfully important. he ran a campaign from the heart. >> reporter: minority leader harry reid said sanders knows his run is over. >> i didn't hear a single word about him trying to change the fact that she's the nominee. i think he's accepted that. >> reporter: donald trump was quick to respond to the president's endorsement writing on twitter he wants four more years of obama, but nobody else does. and using the twitter response for posts that tone deaf or out of touch, clinton's campaign responded, delete your account. anthony, that spawned a stream of snarky comebacks about clinton's deleted emails and quickly became the clinton campaign's most-shared tweet ever. >> there was a lot of twitter conversation on that yesterday. thanks. with the democrats closing ranks behind clinton, republicans are vowing to raise all the money donald trump needs to run against her. trump met yesterday with dozens of gop donors
7:12 am
fund-raising operation that lags behind clinton's. this comes as a new poll shows clinton leading trump by three points nationally. chip reid shows what's next for trump and the republican national committee. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump is trying to get his financial house in order while he boasted of self-funding his self primary campaign, he's relying on the rnc and state parties for fund-raising. that means trump needs the party to do much of the groundwork in the general election. >> mr. trump? >> reporter: donald trump huddled with republican money men thursday looking to fill his general election war chest. >> how did the meeting go? >> reporter: new jersey governor christie chris christie was tightlipped on what went down inside the private meeting. fundraiser lou isenberg sounded confident. >> donald trump will have enough money with money left over. >> is there a minim figure? >> as much as he ned to win. >> reporter: chairman paul
7:13 am
number in mind. >> how much do you think you need to beat clinton? >> not slchz you people think. >> reporter: the candidate threw out a grandiose amount last month -- >> over a billion dollars necessary -- >> reporter: trump dialed way back this week telling bloomberg he wouldn't need as much money because he gets so much publicity. he'll be facing a multi-pronged attack from democrats. >> we will not allow a small, insecure, thin-skinned, wannabe tyrant or his allies in the senate to destroy the rule of law in the united states of america. [ applause ] >> reporter: senator elizabeth warren led the charge along with vice president joe biden who denounced trump's controversial attack on a federal judge. >> i find donald trump's conduct in this regard reprehensible. >> reporter: with just five months to go until the general election, house speaker paul ryan characterized his party's nominee as a work in progress. >> this is a long campaign, a long way to go. and heas
7:14 am
us a campaign we can all be proud of. >> reporter: with president obama ready to hit the trail for hillary clinton, donald trump will need cash if he wants to counter her high-powered campaign. he's behind by a lot. there are reports her campaign and its allies expect to raise $1 billion, and that team trump is aiming for less than half that. >> all right. thank you very much. mark leibovich is the chief national correspondent for "the new york times" magazine and joins us. it was a big dale for hillary clinton, not only getting the endorsement of the president, vice president, but elizabeth warren. the two will meet this morning. what does that mean for her? >> it's what unity looks like. i think there was obviously in the back of her mind, in the back of some people's minds, the worry that this would linger a little bit more. i think the consolidation process is beginning. i think bernie sanders will be the next step. >> what advantage if any at this point do you think that gives her given the disarray in the moment at the republican party? >> it helps as a contrast. i think one of the things the democrats have going for them
7:15 am
trump is they can be seen as the party of grown-ups. they'll have two former presidents -- >> a slogan there. party of grown-ups. >> they'll have two former presidents campaigning for a former secretary of state. you'll have biden, maybe bernie sanders, elizabeth warren. i think that's a healthy contrast to draw especially this week with trump. >> now the speculation as to who is going to be her running mate. as mentioned, she's meeting with elizabeth warren today. and elizabeth warren office a talk show last night and asked it her qualifications, her capability. i want you to hear this and see what you have to say about that. >> do you believe you would be capable of stepping into that job and doing that job if you were ever called to do it? >> yes, i do. >> she didn't stutter. >> she didn't stutter. she's been demuring the whole time. i think that was a data point. i think she probably would like a big role all of a sudden. i don't know if this was her plan all along -- >> do you think she's on the vp
7:16 am
list? >> sure. she's certainly on the public vp list. help the clinton campaign to let people know that she's talking to her. i think it's a very -- i think that they would consider her. i think it's still a long xsho. >> and how effective was president obama's endorsement yesterday? i love how he laid out, listen, i know how hard this job is. she's most qualified. to simply say "i'm with her," what role will he play? >> it's basically i know how hard this job is. i think we'll hear variations from a lot of people over the next months. it draws a contrast of serious not, of decency, of taking the approach to the job, having been there, and the stakes. >> this is the front page of "usa today," number-one paper, trump didn't pay bills, waiters and others say they didn't get paid. what does this say about the strength of his campaign? >> all those things. seriously, i think there g
7:17 am
to be a flood of these things. it's not booze of opposition research either -- not because of opposition research either. a lot of this has been out there or been mined the last weeks, months, by journalistic organizations. i think there's a lot of data around him already. >> if you look at the "wall street journal"/nbc poll, trump outpolls hillary clinton when it comes to who you trust to handle the economy. >> i think the numbers are closing a little especially if you look at the recent polls. there's a lot of room to fall for him. stories like this certainly are very unhelpful. >> and -- >> what about the financial disparity that chip reed referred to, that clinton was looking to raise a billion dollars and trump less than half that? >> it could be considerable less than half that. it's -- he doesn't have the apparatus, the rnc is a little overwhelmed by what's being thrown on their plates. so yeah. donald trump -- when you've been saying the whole time i'm going to be self-funding my campaign, it's not a great sales pitch to fundraisers. >> mark leibovich, thank you very much. an earthquake

insurance. jim axelrod is here with two part of his investigation. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we have learned a federal investigation led by the pentagon's defense criminal investigative service is now underway. it is focusing on another part of the scheme that targeted soldiers' health care insurance. judging by what we uncovered, they won't have much trouble finding evidence. this heap of trash dumped into a shed at a clinic near ft. hood contains soldier' social security numbers, medical information, dna specimens and more than 60 photocopies of military i.d.s. it was one of three clinics near ft. hood where we found marketers had offered soldier $50 walmart gift cards in exchange for their urine. enticing soldiers to undergo unneeded drug testing that could be billed to tricare, the military's insurance plan. >> there was a lot of people. it was full. >> reporter: linda

prosecutors in michigan are working to determine in a parrot can serve as a trial witness in a murder case. a michigan man was shot and killed in his home last year. weeks later, his african gray parrot apparently mimicked what may have been an argument before the shooting. don dahler shows how the pet could hold the key to the mystery. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we all know parrots are smart.

used in court? prosecutors haven't ruled it out. we wanted to go inside the mind of these incredible birds, so we took a trip to harvard and sat down with a leading researcher and her friends to see if parrots could make credible witnesses. how smart is an african gray parrot? the answer might surprise you. >> their communicative abilities are, if you're lucky, about a 2-year-old. their cognitive ability are roughly that of a 5-year-old. >> reporter: irene pepperburg run the alex foundation and the pepperburg lab on the campus of harvard university. she's been studying this species of parrot for 40 years. in the animal kingdom, where do you think their intelligence lies on a scale, say, with dogs, chimpanzees, dolphins, that kind of thing? >> they're equivalent to the chimpanzees and dolphins. >> reporter: highly intelligent? >> yes. people say, oh, their brains are so tiny. it's not the size of the brain per se, but the size of the brain relative to the size of
